Medical Emergencies

We hope that your visit to Structures Congress will be free from illness or injury but in case you or a family member needs medical attention during your time at the event please contact the hotel's front desk. For life-threatening emergencies call 911. 

Meeting Room Overcrowding

ASCE/SEI will make every effort to schedule popular events in rooms large enough to accommodate anticipated attendance. Because many events are extremely popular, it is wise to select alternative events as you plan your Conference schedule. ASCE/SEI and the host facilities are REQUIRED to follow local fire regulations and may ask participants in rooms at capacity to choose another event.

No Smoking

ASCE/SEI supports a “No Smoking” policy. Smoking is prohibited in the all venues hosting ASCE events.

Professional Development Hours (PDHs)

By attending certain conference sessions and seminars, you may earn PDHs, which are nationally recognized units of record. Please note there are differences from state to state in continuing education requirements for professional engineering licensure. Each state licensing board has the final authority to approve courses, credits, PDHs and other methods of earning credits in that state. ASCE/SEI strongly recommends that individuals regularly check with their state licensing boards for specific continuing education requirements in their jurisdictions that affect professional engineering licensure and the ability to renew licensure.

Program and Session Cancellation

ASCE/SEI reserves the right to cancel programs and/or sessions. In the unlikely event of a cancellation, all registrants will be notified.
